The In Their Footsteps series, hosted by Lewis and Clark National Historical Park and Fort Clatsop, continues with a free talk, “I Am Always on the Women’s Side – Vignettes of the Civil War,” by Karen Haas at 1 p.m. Sunday.
Hass is a storyteller, music teacher, curator, tour guide and living history performer.
Her talk will cover researched diaries, letters and songs written by women impacted by the Civil War. Hass’ presentation will introduce six historic women from all sides and walks of life at that time. The audience will meet these women striving to survive in a time of violence, turmoil and societal change.
The monthly Sunday In Their Footsteps forums are sponsored by the Lewis & Clark National Park Association and the park. These programs are held in the Netul River Room of Fort Clatsop’s visitor center and are free.
